Missing emails

I seem to be experiencing suprisingly low eMail traffic - and am aware
of a few known instances where things haven't got through. Even the
spam is very low volume.
Anyone else noticing this recently? And if anyone has recently sent me
an email and not recieved a reply please pop a note here.

I don't think that I've had any problems - in fact I've had more spam this week than usual.

Got any sever-side filtering on? The lack of spam might indicate an over-enthusiastic filter. Assuming you have filtering,there ought to be a log somewhere.

Sadly it's BT-Yahoo who do the filtering not me !

Do they not have a config option? If they do it'll most like be via a web portal.

Easynet operate a spam filter (optional) on their accounts, and it is all dumped into a folder which we can access on the web and either delete the lot (usually) or have a trawl through in case there is something there (not found any yet!)
You should have the same facility with BT-Yahoo, and while we have an account there because of our BT Broadband connection, we have never used it.

I'm on BT Yahoo, and all my junk emails get put into a folder called "bulk", which I sort through when anything gets into it and chuck it all. On the subject of spam I think membership of groups such as this contributes greatly, the only spam I get is to the email I use here and on yahoo groups, which keeps my personal email clear. I used to be with pipex, but gave up when the spam level got to 200+ per day! I think it was because they set all accounts up with default names, to which you could add an alias -too easy to guess that if xyx22 was a valid email then xyz23 would probably work as well.

I'm sure you're right about spam and newsgroups, but we have been pretty happy with the way easynet have got their filtering set up, and after all, it only needs one mail to more than one ISP recipient at a time to be classed as possible spam?
The other favourite is to just get a programme to generate email name and add any ISP to that list, you'll be bound to get losses but generally the hit rate is pretty good.
Having said that, my email spam that eventually gets through tends to be falling off these days, partly through me bouncing spam back to the sender with Mailwasher and partly because it is slowly coming under control.
